Denis Mizne: High Quality Education for All

Quality education is essential for every community to flourish. In too many countries, however, access to this crucial asset is still unequal among the different groups located across the wealth spectrum. As a result, countries are failing to develop and leverage their full talent potential, and preclude their citizens from thriving in the society through social mobility. This was the case of Brazil, until a coalition mobilised by the Fundação Lemann managed to drive a structural #change. In this podcast interview with Christoph Schmocker, Fundação Lemann CEO Denis Mizne reflects on the strategy, the challenges, the alliances and the crucial steps taken to change Brazil’s National Learning Standards and make them accessible to all Brazilian students.
